Management Information System
<application> (MIS) A computer system, usually based on a mainframe or
minicomputer, designed to provide management personnel with up-to-date
information on an organisation's performance, e.g. inventory and sales. These
systems output information in a form that is useable by managers at all levels
of the organisation: strategic, tactical, and operational. A good example of an
MIS report is an annual report for a stockholder (a scheduled report).
